ENGLISH MAJORS A Comedy Collection for the Highly Literate

by | Read by Garrison Keillor et al.

Humor • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

In this satirical collection of skits, Keillor pays tribute to, while simultaneously mocking, our literary tradition. With skits like "The Ten-Minute Macbeth," “Kerouac—Minnesota Style,” and an updated version of THE SCARLET LETTER, this compilation will certainly evoke laughs from listeners. Besides some of his own classic skits, such as “Guy Noir,” Keillor also includes several celebrity performances, including those of Dave Barry, Billy Collins, and Roy Blount, Jr. Overall, this compilation proves enjoyable, but some skits fall short of the mark in terms of their level of humor and interest. The abbreviated and revamped classics prove the most amusing as do the several skits that satirize grammar rules. L.E. 2009 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
